SOURCE: 1988 nissan 300zx won't turn over

Possible short in the starter solenoid, killing power while attempting to crank, but restoring power when you stop the attempt. If I remember correctly, (*been a while since I've been under the hood of my 300ZX*), the solenoid is separate from the starter motor itself. Also, Make sure you have a solid ground at the starter connector, as well as a good positive connection.
Another thing to look at,(*I've had this happen several times*), check the condition and tightness of your battery terminal connections. If one of these are at fault, you will have the problems you described, but power is not likely to return until after you either turn the key all the way off, or jiggle the terminals.

If power returns when you jiggle the terminals, either tighten them some more, or if they are worn, like mine were, you will HAVE to replace them, as the snap-lock feature will never tighten them enough anymore. If this solves your problem, I highly recommend you also spray on some battery terminal corrosion preventative compound. I've noticed in my 300Z, the terminals were always corroding unless I did this.

Hope this gets you up and running, and good luck!!!

SOURCE: the dashboard show SRS

It sounds like 2 different problems. The dead battery is most likely caused by a bad alternator or an "Ignition-Off Draw" (Something staying on after the ignition is turned off) The SRS light means that there is a problem with your Supplemental Restraint System. This could be caused by an airbag circuit or a seat belt pretensioner circuit. You will have to scan your Restraint System Module to find out why it has turned the light on.

SOURCE: the 'theft system' light does not turn off with the key in the run position on my 1999 chevy cavalier. car won't start, it won't even crank over. the battery and the starter are brand

try locking your car with the key and unlocking it with the key, leave it for 30 second or so between the locking and unlocking , the car thinks some one has tampered with it

SOURCE: wiring diagram citroen xsara 2000

I see several different problems here.

First, installing aftermarket accessories like remote starts and alarm systems is asking for electrical problems with your vehicle. Those things are known to cause all kinds of problems including stalling, incorrect air/fuel ratio, and no-starts. Not to mention that the vehicle wiring harnesses usually get BUTCHERED in the process of installing them. They also make diagnosis of future problems (like stalling, no-starts, or computer fault codes) nearly impossible because the repair technician has no way of knowing if the aftermarket accessories are at fault or if it is being caused by a malfunction in the factory equipment.

Then, if you do not know where to start, it makes me question whether you should be messing with the electrical (and most likely, computer) circuits in your vehicle to begin with.

In addition to that, there is no way that anyone can help you to perform that task without having the instructions from the manufacturer of the system you are trying to install. Different systems tie in to different circuits in the vehicle. There is no way of knowing which vehicle circuits you are needing diagrams for. Did the system not come with instructions?

I have 2 recommendations for you:

1. Don't do it. If your vehicle is not equipped by the manufacturer with the options that you want, you are better off to save your money to buy a car that is.

2. If you choose to ignore recommendation number 1, I recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified automotive repair technician in your area.

My Citroen Xsara Picasso has major issues. Was driving fine but then heard what sounds like electrical sparks from right side of steering column. Any ideas?


If the vehicle has tilt steering, it could be a pinched harness at the pivot point in the column. Otherwise check for big fuses located in plastic box close to battery( inner fender well. Should be a 60 amp or 40 amp. Check every fuse in the box while your there.

My Citroen Xsara 2001 model is always getting a battery drain. A brand new battery run flat drain in just 40mins of drive and just stop and wont start again the car. But after putting a brnad new battery...


If you have a test light, what you want to do it to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Connect the test light between the negative post on the battery and the negative cable. Be sure your doors are closed and the hood switch if you have one isn't on. If you are showing the light lit, then you have a draw. To isolate the circuit you pull one fuse at a time and replace it until the light goes out. That way you have isolated the circuit that's causing the drain. from there just start tracing wires.
